Popcorn Chicken

"Popcorn chicken” is a dish of bite-sized pieces of fried chicken, resembling popcorn. Gene Gagliardi developed Popcorn Chicken for the KFC restaurant menu, introduced by August 1992.

KFC did not trademark the name “popcorn chicken,” and the dish is also served at Arby’s restaurants. Two now-abandoned trademarks for “popcorn chicken” were filed in 1987 and 1991.


Wikipedia: Fried chicken
Popcorn chicken — occasionally known as chicken bites or other similar terms, small morsels of boneless chicken, battered and fried, resulting in little nuggets that resemble popcorn.
